Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the 2013 Liberty Medal this fall from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who many speculate could be a hypothetical 2016 presidential challenger to the former first lady.
Clinton will be honored "in recognition of her lifelong career in public service and her ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of women and girls around the globe," according to the National Constitution Center's website.
Bush will present the award to Clinton at the N.C.C. in Philadelphia during a ceremony on Sept. 10.
“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy,” said Bush, who serves as the center's chairman, in a press release. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, is a past recipient of the award.
